The other day I received a letter from Gracie’s gastroenterologist, which has forced me to make a decision. I decided to ask your opinion on this dilemma. You see her doctor is retiring from being the chief pediatric gastroenterologist at his office and moving his practice to other office still affiliated with a college. She sees he is currently associated with Duke University but will be moving to staff at the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill. My dilemma is we are given a choice we can either stay at the current office and been seen by another doctor on staff or we can choose to go to the other practice with our current doctor. I am pretty torn by this plan. One day I think we are moving with our doctor because we have been with him for over 3 years now and Gracie hardly ever has a flare with her IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) since we found a plan working with the doctor. But another part of me thinks that maybe a new doctor can shed some light on what actually cause her flares and made add something new to her plan.
Another downside is that the office, if we choose to move is a little further away than our current office. What would you do if you are faced with this issue? I would love to know what you think.
